Miike takes Manhattan
I'm up and down with prolific (over 70 features) Japanese director Takashi Miike, but he'd probably be an interesting guy to spend an afternoon with. And that's what The Japan Society is promising on Feb. 7, with "From Gore to Westerns: An Incisive Afternoon with Takashi Miike," as the director of Audition, The Happiness of the Katakuris, and Sukiyaki Western Django and Ichi the Killer takes the dais for what should be a lively lecture. Despite the ubiquitous sunglasses, he's always seemed like a night guy to me, though.
